The cancellation of Batgirl, wanted by the new management of Warner Bros. Discovery, left with a bad taste in the mouth the fans of the well-known comic book heroine and the directors of the film Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, who said they were shocked and saddened by the happened. Adil El Arbi has also decided to share a key scene from the film on social networks che portrays Leslie Grace and Michael Keaton as Batgirl and Batman respectively.
Keaton’s Batman meets Batgirl
The Dark Knight (straight from BurtonVerse) he was supposed to play a mentoring role for Barbara Gordon’s alter ego, helping her face the criminals of Gotham City. The scenes shot by Keaton were actually few, but they would have been the focal point around the marketing of the film in any case. Despite the cancellation of Batgirl, we will see him again in The Flash, arriving in 2023, which will clear the concept of the multiverse in DC.
In Batgirl there would also be the return of JK Simmons’ Commissioner Gordon, directly from SnyderVerse, and the debut of Brendan Fraser as Firefly, a well-known comic book villain. Initially planned only for HBO Max, for a moment there was a theatrical release, following the example of The Batmanbut it all went up in smoke.
Another project where Keaton’s Batman will be absent is the Aquaman sequel. To avoid confusing DCEU fans, Warner has decided to call Ben Affleck back and have him shoot additional scenes with Jason Momoa. In any case, this is not an indication of the return of the SnyderVerse since the major has repeatedly stated that it does not want to resume the vision of the controversial director.
Fans appear to have thrown in the towel but David Zazlav, CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, said there is a ten-year plan in place for a DC in theaters and on TV., inspired by what Bob Iger, Alan Horn and Kevin Feige created for Marvel, grossing millions at the box office.
